According to the reports of the local People's Committees, at present, the collection, transportation and treatment of waste have basically met the requirements. In particular, Vinh Hung district has about 20 tons of waste every day,Tan Hung district has about 20 tons of waste, Kien Tuong town has about 25 tons of waste, Moc Hoa district has about 3-5 tons of waste.

However, the treatment of household waste still has certain limitations such as lack of professional waste disposal facilities, incinerators, professional staff, and so on.

The local authorities suggest that the functional agencies should support the renovation and upgrading of old garbage places; urge construction units to quickly complete the renovation and upgrade of waste treatment plants; strengthening more incinerators; and supporting funds for planting trees.

After the practical examination, Director of DNRE - Vo Minh Thanh acknowledged the comments from localities. He stressed that it would inspect and urge construction units to quickly complete the renovation and upgrade of waste treatment plants in the districts.

In addition, the DNRE directs to improve and arrange more incinerators in localities to ensure the handling of all waste and limit environmental pollution. At the same time, it is recommended that localities should coordinate for the state management in the field of natural resources and the environment, especially in waste management in localities effectively.

In addition, the DNRE suggested localities should promote propaganda and raise people's awareness about environmental issues; participate in mobilizing people to actively classify and treat household waste to reduce the load for concentrated garbage places as well as minimize environmental pollution./.
